    "Ok, lets start - this review is purely based on audio and built quality. If you are about fashion and fancy names, than look elsewhere. Last 15 days I was camping in MediaMarkt and Saturn (Deutschland) with one mission only - to decide which headphones to buy. My budget what 300 euros. I have long experience with professional audio equipment, but very low or zero about headphones for listening and enjoying music. I own Bose QC 15 and I like them very much, until today. Music I have used for testing was various - from heavy bass based house, rock, vocal, live concerts, jazz, etc ... you name it, I tried it all really, and mostly from mobile devices - Samsung S4, LG Nexus 4, BlackBerry Bold 9770, Apple Shuffle and Nano. Also, I was using devices in the store, to compare it. All music whas in mp3 format, 320 kbps, ripped from original CD's, audio quality aint something amazing, but still good."

    "These are really amazing for the price, considering they are high end professionally. I love that they practically cancel out everything around me, while fitting comfortably over the ears. The cord is long enough that even if I forget to take them off, I'm unlikely to yank everything out and break things, so that's a big plus for me! They can make ears a bit hot if they're on for a while, but that's true of most things that cover the ears."

    "I like these because they are very comfortable. The sound quality is really good, including the bass, and them being under $150 is much more affordable than most others of similar quality."

    "The HD 25 headphones are a new addition to my already full case of headphones. Good mids and the highs are somewhat less than expected. They don't fit my ears too comfortably and I notice a faint whisp when the volume is all the way up. Not my favorite Sennheisers, but I gave it a shot for the price. "
